MiniThon is a subdivision of a larger organization called Four Diamonds, run by the Penn State Health Department. The mission of Four Diamonds is to help conquer childhood cancer by raising awareness and funds. Four Diamonds has assisted at least 4,000 children and families since its creation.
River Hill’s MiniThon will be the first of its kind in Howard County and only the second chapter in Maryland. Our goal for the year is for each member to raise at least $100 to reach a school-wide goal of $5000, in addition to raising money at monthly fundraisers. Our first fundraiser will be on December 19, 2018 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. The fundraiser will be more enjoyable for younger, elementary school children. It will take place in the River Hill High School media center and will include winter/holiday-themed activities such as arts and crafts and cookie-decorating. a small $12 fee will be instated for every child attending to cover material costs. Parents are welcome to attend as well. All of the money will go towards future fundraising events and to River HillFour Diamonds MiniThon
